JOBS AND INTERNSHIPSDo You Have a Summer Internship to Offer a Young Alum or Current Student?
We've heard from those of you who work for large companies that your employers start the summer intern hiring process for college students right about now, so we're asking you to send us links to those job descriptions which we'll share with our community on sfuhs.org/jobs. If you own or work for a smaller company that starts hiring for college or high school summer interns in the spring, let us know who you are and we'll follow up in the new year. Send an email to UHSalumni@sfuhs.org.Learn How to Rock Your Profile on LinkedIn
Want to give your LinkedIn profile a refresh? We happen to have an expert in the family: Aaron Fung '00, talent brand consultant and professional storyteller with LinkedIn, will host a one hour "Rock Your Profile" interactive seminar over videoconference for our community this fall.

Private UHS Alumni Group on LinkedIn
Nearly 1,300 people—or one-third of all UHS alumni—belong to our private LinkedIn networking group. You can use this group to introduce yourself to a fellow alum or ask Marianna Stark, director of alumni engagement and giving, to facilitate the introduction on your behalf. Once you've requested permission to join (formalities!), you can make announcements, start a discussion, or post a job opening with your company. Click here to join our LinkedIn group.
Are you an expert in your field and want to share what you've learned along the way with a fellow alum on his/her/their way up? OR are you thinking of switching jobs or careers and want advice on how best to position yourself? Send us an email and we'll connect you with a fellow UHS alum who can benefit from knowing you on a professional basis.
Back to School: New Year, New Résumé
Last spring, we offered résumé-writing workshops for UHS students, and over 1/4 of the senior class signed up! For this school year, we've developed some DIY resources (rules for résumé-building and an example of a résumé) so students can first create a first draft on their own—then we'll hold clinics for further refinement. This simple set of instructions gives advice on how to write a one pager resume with a professional format, with tips on how to include volunteer, academic, and all types of work experience.
